Scotland have been handed a boost ahead of next month’s Euro 2020 play-off final with Scott McKenna’s swift Nottingham Forest return.
The defender was forced to withdraw from the national team last week as Steve Clarke’s side played out a grueling three games in six days. McKenna had picked up an injury with Nottingham Forest prior to the break.
It was a worry for Clarke as many fell victim of injury and Covid-19 implications but McKenna seems to have put his injury woes behind him very quickly.
He featured for 90 minutes as Nottingham Forest got a first win of the season under new boss Chris Hughton.
They left it late to do so, however, a Joe Lolley strike in injury-time handing Forest a 1-0 win away at Blackburn Rovers.
It’s a boost for Scotland to see McKenna performing well and putting fitness issues behind him quickly. The national team have a massive match next month, facing Serbia for a place at Euro 2020.
